Attention All Club Members:
Effective 2003 as per the Board of Directors, the Awards and Contest Committee will only be allowed to accept Official Freeport Tuna Club Weigh Slips. These slips are available at every monthly meeting and must be used to standardize the rules of the clubs awards, contests and derbies. In addition, the slips MUST be stamped by an official weigh master at local tackle shops and bait stations only. Fish weighed at fish markets and other types of locations that to not cater to the recreational angler will not be accepted. If a weigh station is not available due to your hour of return, you may weigh the fish the following day. Exception: all fish caught under the 24 hour rule must be weighed the same day.
